6:01 pm
time and money allows, but admit there are other aging pipes in the area that could also present a risk. >> i would say to the degree that we have all of these, i think any pipe on any given day has some vulnerability associated with it. >> so you can see it is a near miss for this neighborhood for the most part, except for the damaged cars. meanwhile they are still working on determining the cause. dana, they are looking closely at the age of the pipe. >> so this is definitely a water pipe. there is no sewage, there is no health risk here? >> reporter: that's right. it was a water pipe connected to a reservoir. but in terms of health risks, the neighbors are still jittery. there is perhaps rain on the horizon but the city assures them that they are fine for now. they'll be okay. >> we'll keep an eye on that. joe, thank you. and coming up in about 20 minutes, the type of coverage you should have on your car to make sure that your protected
